    The One Thing That Really Bothers Me About 'Enter the Dragon'

    Alright, 'Enter the Dragon' good early MA movie. Not perfect, but an entertaining flick overall. However, there is one thing that has always bothered the HELL out of me about this movie:

    Bolo motherfucking Yeung gets KILLED by John puny-ass Saxon after getting hit in the NUTS.

    I mean seriously, the first time you watch this movie you see this bad-ass asian muscle-man villian and think that he is going to fight Bruce Lee at the end in an epic battle. Not only is he forced to job to the wimpy-looking John Saxon, but his fight is short and he DIES after getting kicked in the balls. What kind of martial arts super villian badass gets killed via Saxon groin-kick?

    Discuss.

    Great stuff.

    Enter the Dragon was fine. it just needed more fights, less nuts-ex-machina, and more lovemaking.

    I liked the crucifix type submission Lee does on Sammo in the first scene.
